Liner Notes: 

Looking forward to playing with the mix more on this one. I wanted to capture the feeling of moving from "like" to "love" and thought a misleading title might do the trick.

Lyrics: 

We've been hanging out for weeks
Chilling in the summer sun
Yesterday you kissed me on the cheek
Said the word L-O-V-E

I'm not a girl who's into romance
I don't do chick flicks
There's just this something about you and it
Makes me wanna keep this

So tell me, what is this feeling
Reeling every time that you're around

You give me butterflies
When I look in your eyes
And I don't get it, where is this coming from
My heart beats a tattoo
When it's just me and you
I never cared like this before
But I don't think I like you anymore

I got it on the tip of my tongue
Just haven't said it yet
'Cause when I think about it, I get choked up
You're just too cool, I guess

So tell me, what is this feeling
Reeling every time you come around

You give me butterflies
When I look in your eyes
And I don't get it, where is this coming from
My heart beats a tattoo
When it's just me and you
I never cared like this before
But I don't think I like you anymore

Ooh, I think I'm falling in love
Yeah, I said it
And I meant it
Ooh, I only wanna be where you are
Oh, oh, oh

You give me butterflies
When I look in your eyes
And I don't get it, where is this coming from
My heart beats a tattoo
When it's just me and you
I never cared like this before
But I don't think I like you anymore
No, I don't think I like you anymore
No, I don't think I like you anymore
No, I don't think I like you anymore

So catchy! Great word play in the title/hook. The whole song is superbly put together and produced. Fantastic job!

Well alright! Here's the summer indie pop hit we've been waiting for. I love the way it chugs along, and that chorus is killer. Just great!

[Update: I've listened to a few other songs this morning, but they haven't dislodged your song from my brain. That's quite an earworm: I don't think I like you... :)]

Now this is a hit! So catchy and I smiled all the way through! Just love it!

Hooray for using 'tattoo' in its drumbeat sense!

And a very clever lyrical conceit to use "I don't think I like you anymore" in the opposite sense to how it is typically used!

Sunny, catchy guitar pop.

This song is a win all around!

What a glorious pop song! Great melody, fantastic multitracked vocals (the harmonies in the chorus are stunning) and the misleading title works a treat! Love it!

Oh yeah - I do like this. And I don't care that you used click-bait tactics. This song is a gem. So out the gate I liked what you did with your vocals. That layered effect reminded me of a few songs by Apples in Stereo. It's radio ready and friendly, to tell the truth. The message is positive, too. I'm glad it's not a break up tune but a, "let's stay together' number. Yay!

I like the double-tracked (or some effect) vocal, and the chorus harmonies are super-catchy.

Such a twist -- I don't think I "like" you anymore. I hope everybody has felt what this song describes!

Fun tune.

When I was much younger there were times when it was really hard for me to say something so simple: I love you. I got over that. But. It was hard at one time.

That is a great hook. Such a great summer acoustic love song. The production is stellar. The doubled and harmony vocals shine.

Sheryl Crow vibes here. Fun pop song, but i like that there is some depth/complexity to the lyrics as well.

Boy, this has a sunny alt-pop sensibility that's hard to resist. Clever lyrics, and the doubled vocals/harmonies are great.

This is really catchy! The melody pops! I enjoyed being "fooled" by the title....lol. The vocals shine through too and it has a feel-good vibe going on. Great production!

Super cool! Catchy isn't in it...instant earworm! The words are spot on and the vocals are perfect! Aural sunshine!

Nice melody, a summer cruising song. I really like the harmonies, it is fresh and feels like a drive on a hot sunny day, nice write!

I like the happy feel that isn't too sappy or overdone. And your take on the title/angle of the song is perfect. I just listened over at soundcloud (apparently a new mix?) and it sounds good, too.

You've got a really summery vibe going on here ... love the mellifluous vocals. The sweetness of the music and the cleverness of the lyric really bring to mind a late 80s/90s Canadian band called The Pursuit of Happiness. Enjoyed!

Yes, catchy. Solid pre-chorus and chorus. Very clever title/hook. Nice one!
